I have always loved peanut butter cookies and the combination of chocolate and peanut butter is my guilty pleasure. Not a healthy cookie but in moderation it’s a welcome treat.
This is a simple peanut butter recipe adapted right from the Kraft peanut butter jar. I’ve added dark chocolate to the mix because I love it. Other yummy additions are chopped peanuts, candies or milk chocolate chips. This makes a perfect base for whatever you want. Next time I plan on trying drizzled chocolate on top.
Without flour, these cookies are gluten free and easy to make. So many people eat gluten free due to medical issues. I find the cookies come out of the oven moist and will fall apart if you try and take them off the pan. Have patience. As the cookies cool they become firm.
- Preheat oven to 350 F
- Mix all ingredients.
- Roll into balls, place on cookie sheet and press with fork in criss cross pattern.
- Bake for 15 minutes.
- Cool for awhile on cookie sheet before taking off with spatula. These cookies are moist and will break easily until cooled.
